Johnny Gaudreau has been inducted into the All-Sports Museum of Southern New Jersey.
The 22-year-old NHLer is the youngest inductee to receive the honor. "I think it's going to hit me a little bit harder as the years go on and I realize some of the players that are actually in this museum, and it's exciting right now," Gaudreau said. "It's a pretty special moment for me." Gaudreau, who is a Salem, New Jersey native, called the 2014-15 season a learning experience, but he enjoyed plenty of success with 64 points in 80 games.

Johnny Gaudreau thought he would be sent to the minors after he was a healthy scratch in October.

He wasn't as Johnny Hockey turned his season around so much that he is now one of the three finalists for the Calder Trophy which is awarded to the NHL's top rookie. Gaudreau ended the season with 24 goals and 64 points and will battle Aaron Ekblad of the Panthers and Mark Stone of Ottawa for the prestigious award.

Johnny Gaudreau potted his fourth goal of the playoffs in Game 5, as Calgary was eliminated from the playoffs by Anaheim.

He gave the Flames a 2-1 lead going into the third period, but the Ducks came from behind and won the game by a score of 3-2 in overtime. Gaudreau finished the postseason with a three-game point streak and nine points in 11 outings.

Johnny Gaudreau was front and center with the media to talk about his giveaway on the tying goal.

Gaudreau gave up the puck to Andrew Cogliano deep in the Calgary end and the puck ended up in the Flames net to tie the game at two. "I didn’t see that guy from the board side,’’ said Gaudreau. "Next thing you know, he picked my pocket, had a two-on-oh, and tied the game up real quick. That was a little momentum shift there. Obviously, I’m learning every game. It’s my rookie season. There’s a whole bunch of different learning experiences … and that’s definitely one. Obviously, I should’ve got the puck out there. If I saw him a second or two earlier, I probably would have made a chip off the wall and wouldn’t have carried it there. But that’s what happened." For the record, coach Bob Hartley did not blame Gaudreau, saying that the Flames would be no where without the talented rookie.

Johnny Gaudreau scored the game-tying goal in Game 3 with just 19.5 seconds left in the third period.

The Ducks were about to take a commanding 3-0 lead in the series, but Gaudreu's power-play marker sent the game into an extra session. Mikael Backund got the Flames back in the match-up by supplying the game winner. For Gaudreau, it was his first point of the series and his third goal of the playoffs.

Johnny Gaudreau was not happy at being benched for the third period Thursday.

Coach Bob Hartley said that Gaudreau was on the bench as the Ducks were 'taking far too many liberties with him.' "I believe he wasn’t OK with this," Hartley said. "When I told him early in the third period and I told him why wasn’t playing. Johnny wants to be on the ice." The diminutive forward had 24 goals and 64 points in the regular season and has two goals and six points in seven playoff games.

Johnny Gaudreau feels fine after absorbing a hard hit by Nate Thompson during Thursday's contest.

Gaudreau didn't play in the third period, so that's part of the reason the issue came up. It's worth noting that Flames coach Bob Hartley said that he Gaudreau wasn't hurt. Instead, he benched Gaudreau because he felt the Ducks were taking too many liberties with him. That might seem unusual, but the Ducks were already winning 4-0 going into the third, so Hartley didn't have much incentive to risk putting Gaudreau out there.

Johnny Gaudreau didn't get any ice time in the third period of Thursday's 6-1 loss to Anaheim.

Flames coach Bob Hartley didn't portray Gaudreau's benching as a reflection of the rookie's play or due to an injury. Instead, Hartley wanted to rest Gaudreau as he felt the Ducks were "taking far too many liberties" with him. The fact that a team is being rough on your player typically isn't cause enough for a benching, but Anaheim went into the third period up 4-0 so it made sense for Hartley to decide against taking the risk.

Calgary coach Bob Hartley is not concerned by the lack of scoring from his top line in the first two games of the series.

Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan and Jiri Hudler have been stymied by the Canucks and the Flames troika will look to get things together for Game 3 back in Calgary Sunday. "It’s just two games. They’re two great young players with Huds," Hartley said. "My job is to take pressure away from them, not add pressure. They know. They’re two great kids and Huds is a great veteran. They’ve got a job done for us all year. This is a different scenario. This is a different challenge. They’re going to fight through and they’re gonna learn." Look for a breakout game Sunday from the trio.

Much like the Winnipeg Jets, the Calgary Flames are allowing many key players to catch their breath after Thursday's playoff-clincher.

Flames forwards expected to be out: Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, Jiri Hudler, David Jones and Paul Byron. Defensemen out include Kris Russell, Dennis Wideman, T.J. Brodie and Raphael Diaz.

Johnny Gaudreau tallied a goal and an assist in Thursday's huge 3-1 win over the Kings.

Gaudreau kicked off the night's scoring with a beautiful entry into the offensive zone by backing off two defenders and navigating around a third. He'd soon slam home a Jiri Hudler rebound for his 24th goal of the season. Gaudreau also now ranks second on the team in scoring with 64 points.
